The K A I Seki Magoroku Hekiju, Yanagi knife is an 21cm single-beveled traditional Japanese slicing knife.
Its long blade allows creating easily thin, perfect slices of raw fish, needed for sushi and sashimi. To slice, start with the back of the knife blade and simply pull it through the fish, letting the weight of the blade itself do the work.
Made for left-hand use, the Hekiju 18cm yanagiba has a bevel on the left side and a concave on the right. This allows a more acute angle compared to most double bevel knives and nonstick properties.
The back face (urasuki) is concave to easily detach the blade from the substance being cut, and the front bevel (shinogi) allows sliced piece to be easily removed from the blade after cutting.
Yanagibas always come in a single bevel. The specific Hekiju is specially developed for left-handers.
Especially for beginners, but also for advanced users, the K A I Seki Magoroku Kinju and Hekiju knives guarantee the best comfort with a long-lasting sharpness and high quality.
All the knives the series are particularly light in the hand and enable precise cutting.
These Japanese designed knives feature an AUS8 vanadium - molybdenium stainless steel polished blade with a hardness of 58±1 HRC that lend your kitchen the unmistakable Far Eastern flair.
The traditional hexagonal handle is made from black Pakkawood, a robust resin and have a leather-like, non-slip embossing. In addition, they are easy to clean and antibacterial. The polished nylon bracket, heat resistant up to 90℃, adds harmony to the elegant black colour.
Because of the Japanese design, these knives don’t have a bolster so the whole edge can be used and the entire length can be sharpened.
The series features traditional Japanese single-bevel blade shapes, with 7 blades of the Kinju knives which are suitable for right-handers, while the two blades of the Hekiju series which are specially designed for left-handed users.
Single-beveled blades excel when extremely precise cuts are needed—for example, when preparing sushi.
Made in Japan with the latest technology of the cutlery industry.
